      Congrats on purchasing your dress! I also purchased mine through the designer's trunk show and ended up saving about $500 on the dress. Trunk shows are the best!

      So ladies...do your research and shop around for the best deal for the dress of your dreams!  Search for trunk shows, and dont be afraid to ask for a deal on your dress.  : )

      Yes, buy the knock-off.  It looks like Maggie Soterro to me.

       

      I say train & get a small bustle!

       

      GORGEOUS GOWN!

      1 - Buying the knockoff but does anybody recognize who the original designer might be??

      2 - Train or no train?  It's not too long but I'm worried about it getting dirty in the sand and such....

          Acornk - it's BEAUTIFUL on you. I like the sweetheart neckline on you better than the other choice. gives it a little va-va-voom!!
